Your Body Doesn't Come With Buts...

Last night I watched the Katie Hopkins documentary and to be honest with you, I just found it a bit dull. I fully expected to be writing a blog post rant about how angry she made me but I just can't find it in me. She said nothing new, shed a few tears about how she understood people more now and then sent offensive tweets to just about anyone who would listen - Dull, Dull and Duller!

However, over the last few days I have seen advert after advert of TV fat programs - The Shut-Ins on Channel 4 and a program about fat people on benefits on Channel 5, all coming up in the next week or so. On top of Katies's part two tomorrow and re-runs of My Big Fat Fetish.

They're designed to be sensationalist, to tell you that overweight people are bad and that as a fat person you should strive to lose weight... As if being bombarded with weight loss product adverts throughout January wasn't enough.

I don't want to talk about them too much, I am sure it is easy to guess how I feel about them!

However... I am here to tell you that your body doesn't come with buts....

It is not only OK to be 'fat but healthy', you can be fat in anyway you want. If you don't want to be fat any more and want to diet instead, that is OK too!

You don't have to be striving to lose weight. You don't to give excuses for your body... You don't have to claim to be too busy to lose weight or too poor to buy healthy food. You can be just the way you are without having to give people a reason why! You don't need to be fat 'but only because I have *** illness".

You don't have to be 'fat but I exercise alot".You're allowed to be fat with NO JUSTIFICATION at all!

Your body. Your Rules. Your happiness comes first. Without exception.

Get A Better Mirror - The To This Day Project

I have probably mentioned this poem before and to be honest with you, I probably will again. I can not stress how important it is to me to watch, read and listen to body positive influences. It saddens me that we have to go out there and find them, but it is great that they're there to be found, should we want to!

This one - The To The Day Project by Shane Koyczan gets to me everytime I rediscover it, so if you have a spare 5 minutes make sure you give it a watch. It's beautiful.



And if you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself
Get a better mirror
Look a little closer
Stare a little longer
Because there’s something inside you
That made you keep trying
Despite everyone who told you to quit

If you have any body image, confidence, fat, size related items that you think I would love to see - please share the links!
